What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 165: Too Cold to Care


While handy in a towel, absorbency is not generally a good trait in a snowsuit

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Babies, it’s cold outside! I know there are many, many parts of the world that are accustomed to deep, dark cold, but I’m a New Yorker. Therefore, while I know how to handle myself in a knife fight (hint: run away), single-digit temperatures fill me with dread. So since the Eastern seabord is in the throes of its first Nor’easter of the year and the mercury has been hanging around in the single digits for a week now, I thought it would be timely to go looking for real winter outerwear. Snowsuits and boots, puffy coats, anything to help keep out the cold. Stay warm, my people!

Inuit snow mask. A little unusual looking, but since that’s what I look like going to work this morning, I get it. By MattesonLeatherWorks

Ever feel like it’s just too cold to get out from under the blankets? Now you don’t have to!

Pinterest is full of ideas for leftover wrapping paper. Here’s one I did not see coming.

With this doggie snow hat and a little blue eyeshadow, your Chihuahua can look just like Robert Smith from The Cure

This snowsuit comes in small, medium, large, and Hefty, Hefty, Hefty!

I guess you could just keep the kitten and throw the boots away.

While throwing on your drapes won’t keep you warm, at least they make for a great conversation piece!

Feathered snow booties for your dog. Because dogs don’t hate booties enough already.

Finally! A winter coat you can use to signal planes!

If anyone’s wondering where all the coyotes went, I think I found them.

Kids, in the eighties everyone wore awful stuff like this. We were ugly, but we were warm! But really, really ugly.

Looks like somebody’s overdue for a trip to the groomer…

Colorful, yes, but that is some unfortunate toad stool placement

  1. I live in a cold place….and I take public transit….so actually, none of this is that bizarre.

  3. There is not a single item in today’s Etsomnia that I remotely covet which just goes to substantiate my viewpoint that nothing good ever comes of stepping outside in bloody cold temperatures.
